President Trump lent a couple of helping hands to Hurricane Harvey victims Saturday… but, apparently, those helping hands of his are “too big” for plastic gloves.
The POTUS headed to Houston Saturday to check out the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and to offer comfort and support for the thousands left homeless. As he met people in a food line in Houston’s NRG Stadium, he slipped on plastic gloves to assist in the serving. Or, at least, he tried to slip on plastic gloves to assist in the serving.
“My hands are too big,” Trump joked, turning to the Fox News cameras.
It should come as no surprise that Twitter had a field day, considering the long-standing joke about the size of his hands — or, their lack of size, as social media has suggested. Here’s a tiny sliver of the ribbing he got.
I think he meant mouth.

At least this time he only mentioned his hands.

I think this, somehow, means Trump killed Nicole and Ron. I’m almost positive…

Well, the old OJ trial mantra if the glove don’t fit…you must be tried for treason and crimes against humanity. ( or something like that)

Many others came to the president’s defense, thanked him for his support and, well, told the others on Twitter to put a sock in it.
So he has a good sense of humor! Are you guys really a news source?
